Homegrown, Emirati-owned fine jewellery brand Shamsa Alabbar is celebrating 7 years since its inception this month and the coveted brand’s namesake founder asked The Huntr to help her plan something special for the anniversary. Since Covid-19 is party-pooping big gatherings and celebrations, we opted for something small and extra exclusive…
So, to mark the 7 years, The Huntr is devising 7 epic, one-of-a-kind experiences for 7 of Shamsa’s muses and their guests.
We aren’t going to give too much away (because we don’t want to spoil the fun for Shamsa’s special guests) but the 7 ladies were all given exclusive access to The Huntr Private Line (a WhatsApp for Business platform we are yet to officially launch). Through this channel we conducted an in-depth Q&A so that we could understand the individual’s preferences and match them to their perfect experience.
Dubai-based florist extraordinaire Kadi Boutique (also celebrating 7 years in business this year) helped us to create the wow-worthy invitations, which have been sent out 24 hours before the experience revealing the location and information and they have also provided that extra special touch to all of the tablescapes. Meanwhile, Ajman-born Emirati illustrator Aysha Al Hemrani created bespoke illustrations of all 7 ladies – featuring their “matched” hotspot or experience. The beautiful Kadi-designed invite ‘globe’ (pictured above) also included personalized masks and a miniature fragrance from Nine By Reem.
So far this celebratory collaboration has seen Emirati blogger Latifa Al Shamsi enjoy a totally bespoke breakfast experience by co-founder and executive chef James Soo Yong Kim of WKND inside its striking studio with her husband Ali. Wdeema Jamal cosy up with her BFF in the incredibly snappable Bali-inspired Koko Bay on The Palm Jumeirah, Alya Taryam sashay down to the secret Chef’s Table inside the Gaia kitchen in DIFC and Jawahr AlSuwaidi enjoy a decadent cheese and chocolate experience in a custom VIP corner high above the crowds at hotspot Mirzam Chocolate in partnership with Maison Duffour.
There’s more to come this week and we are sure you will join us in wishing Shamsa Alabbar and Kadi Boutique a very happy 7th birthday. In the meantime, take a look at some exclusive sneak-peeks inside the experiences so far, below…
